I did this before by following these directions at:
I added everything, even installed mozzilla-plugin-vlc. I have all the correct codecs installed. It is not working.
I am using Debian 6.0.3 32bit Squeeze. I have Firefox 8 in a folder in my home directory.
I added this to my Firefox about
/usr/bin/vlc (also tried mplayer and gmplayer)
Just as the instructions said. I did get this working before on another computer recently. But for some reason it doesn't want to work for me now.
Maybe because Firefox is not actually installed but in a stand alone folder? It is Firefox 8, maybe this doesn't work anymore? Maybe the universe is conspiring against me?
